Thank you to all who posted photos of the June 23 and 24 moon near the planet Venus on EarthSky Facebook and EarthSky on G+.

Venus will remain visible in our eastern, predawn sky until October, but moon is waning now and will soon leave the predawn sky. Say goodbye to the waning moon on the morning of June 25.
